Error message in `eval-expression'

From: Steve Kemp
Subject: Error message in `eval-expression'
Date: Sun, 21 Jan 2001 14:32:46 +0000

In GNU Emacs 20.7.1 (i386-*-nt5.0.2195)
 of Fri Sep 29 2000 on VISTULA
 configured using `configure NT'

  Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
 and the precise symptoms of the bug:

  Running "M-:" (eval-expression), and giving
 a non-complete sexp causes an invalid error message:

   M-: (setq debug-on-error t) [RET]
   M-: (setq steve-error t     [RET]    (Not the lack of closing ')' ).

   -> Error : "End of file during parsing"

  Incidently; I imagined the result of performing the
 first eval would be that I'd get dropped into the Lisp
 debugger - but that didn't happen.

  `eval-expression' is defined in simple.el - but to be
 honest I didn't see an immediate cause for the error.
